Big Brother: All-Stars
Danielle Reyes (born January 22, 1972), is most notable for being a contestant on the 3rd and All-Star seasons of the American version of the CBS reality show Big Brother. She is considered to be on the list of the top BB players of all-time according to Reality TV critics, fellow BB players, and BB fans.
Reyes works as media buyer in Fairfield, California. She is married and has two children. She was declared the runner-up of season 3 on day 82 and won $50,000, losing to Lisa Donahue in a 9-1 vote. This result sparked and still sparks much criticism from BB fans who felt that Danielle lost the game purely on her entries in the Diary Room, where she often spoke about her fellow houseguests in a mocking and critical manner. The following season, the jury house was introduced, as a result of Danielle's loss. Early on in the game, Danielle teamed up with Jason in a strong but very secretive alliance. The alliance almost took them to the final 2, but they failed to win the final Head of Household prompting Lisa to evict Jason. Jason was Danielle's only vote in the final. In 2006, Danielle accepted an offer to appear on Big Brother 7: All Stars, where she claimed she was seeking redemption for her Big Brother 3 loss. Danielle has been named (by fans and players alike) as "The Greatest Player Who Never Won."
